Outback Steakhouse Applies for Beer, Wine & Liquor License

Outback Steakhouse has applied for a beer, wine & liquor license, as the restaurant moves toward opening at Ellsworth Place.

A liquor board hearing on Outback’s application is scheduled for 11:30 a.m. on August 3rd, according to signage posted at the location.

Brentwood, Tenn.-based GBT Realty, which owns Ellsworth Place, announced in March that Outback had signed a lease for approximately 7,000 square feet of restaurant and patio space in the former home of Not Your Average Joe’s, which closed in 2020.

“Outback Steakhouse is a great addition to Ellsworth Place’s well-rounded assortment of restaurants, shops, entertainment, and services,” GBT Realty senior vice president Trey Culpepper said in the March announcement. “Since we acquired this center in 2018, we’ve worked to position it as a hub for value-oriented shopping and popular dining in this extremely diverse neighborhood. The addition of Outback brings us one step closer to creating the highly desirable destination that we envision for the surrounding community.”

A spokesperson for Bloomin’ Brands, Outback’s parent company, did not provide a timetable for opening, though construction is currently underway. The steakhouse joins a lineup of local and national restaurant brands including Dave & Buster’s, Chipotle Mexican Grill, Don Pollo, McGinty’s Public House, and Ben & Jerry’s, as well as the Commas food hall, which is expected to open later this year.
